For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a physician. That was my first goal, and I achieved that goal. In fact, I liked everything in medicine, and so it was a hard decision as to what I wanted to do. But I did know from an early age that the things that I enjoyed most were working with my hands, doing things that required fine control, and my hobbies were always oriented in that way. So when I was looking for a specialty, it seemed like ophthalmology was a perfect fit for me. In fact. it's been a wonderful choice, something that I've never looked back on and always felt that it was the best thing that I possibly could have chosen.
